Stella is a bossy woman.....

....and that means it's time for another

Stella Says Sketch Challenge
over at Catch the Bug!
This week's sketch features a basic design.
I ended up deviating a little bit becaue instead of putting my sentiment where the sketch wanted it, I used it as the focus, and the image as part of the background.

For my card today, I've used the Bugaboo Stamps image, Coffee Time - Smell the Coffee
I pulled out my stash of DCWV La Creme papers for this. The bg paper is a flocked piece, and I wasn't sure how it would allow the glue I use (Tombow Mono Multi) to adhere, but it did really well! I was glad I didn't have to bust out the dbl-sided sticky tape! I used a new MS punch for my border.
I thought the bright pop of blue worked well against the monotone creams and browns. My brads are some old CTMH from my stash, and matched the color blue I used in my image and sentiment well, I think. :0) I like it when your stash matches a current coloring idea, don't you?! lol!
